Has anyone heard of...

There is a small cranberry sized berry known as the miracle fruit, which temporarily deactivates your ability to taste sour or bitter. Take one of these and apparently lemons become absolutely divine to eat on their own, cider vinegar tastes like apple juice, stout like chocolate milk...
A friend of mine was telling me that he’d recently been to a flavor tripping party and that this miracle fruit really did work. Does anyone know where you can get this thing? Apparently you can find it in pill form... I have to try this!
Damn I'd be too scarred that by some fluke, my taste buds stay deactivated indefinitely. Sounds kinda fun though.
I bought mine through Amazon without any difficulty... it definitely doesn't affect bitterness though, only sour! Things with a slight hint of sourness tend to be better than outright acidic things like lemons, such as tomatoes, grapes and grapefruits, in my experience.
fruitgenie.com is new, but even though it's based here, you still have to order online. Good luck!
